Derby, Baby! explores the drama, the friendships and the addictive nature of women's flat track roller derby, including never-before-seen bout footage of the international flat track roller derby championships.



The Brewcity Bruisers are excited to announce we will be holding the Wisconsin premiere of Derby, Baby!

For the first time ever, the story of women’s roller derby is covered from both a national and international perspective, as Emmy Award-winning filmmakers Robin Bond and Dave Wruck take you on their international quest to learn why women’s flat track roller derby is the fastest growing sport in the world.

Derby, Baby! explores the drama, the friendships and the addictive nature of women’s flat track roller derby, including never-before-seen bout footage of the international flat track roller derby championships.

The film looks at the many incarnations of the sport since its invention 77 years ago and explores the WWF-like legacy and over-played television coverage of the past that threatens the sport’s image even today. Also featured are the new rock stars of roller derby whose charisma and athleticism may be the key to pushing the sport to greater heights. Superfans, critics, prominent sports writers and sociologists weigh in on the phenomenon that is roller derby and the sport’s organic growth as a unique athletic expression of women’s empowerment.
